Completed Project
ADU Type:
Garage Conversion
ADU Size:
430 sqft, 1 bed, 1 bath
Project Location:
Rancho Cucamonga, CA


Goal: The homeowner wanted to convert their existing garage into an ADU.

Design Challenge: The homeowner wanted to maintain space within their rear yard and create an additional ADU for potential rental income which limited their project to a garage conversion.

Process and Solution: To save on space, the house ventilation was run through the bathroom fan and scheduled to vent on a timer. Additionally a built in shelving unit was included in the bedroom in lieu of a closet which provided more floor space for residents.


The final 430 square foot ADU included a bedroom, a separate living space, a small kitchen, and a bathroom.
